After a good performance in Australia, where he covered 57 out of 58 running races in one set of hard tires and took tenth place, Alex Albon says he sees himself as the leader of his new team.Williams F1.
The Thai showed incredible speed in Melbourne and was able to keep up with the times of midfield teams such as Haas or Alfa Romeo. And he really enjoyed fighting these one-man seats during the Grand Prix.
“It is almost disappointing that Alfa and Haas have continued to join the midfield,” Albon said.
“We are not far from leadership than in previous years, but these young people have gathered in a very small group and it seems we are fighting, when in fact these teams have done a very good job.”
“It was good to fight in the same group of cars as they, though I had to look in my mirrors many times. But, very quickly, I managed to overcome them and said,” Well, we’re going, and let’s go ahead! ” It was very good. “
After three controversial races, Albon has taken the test of teammate Nicholas Latifi, it must be said with great difficulty this season. Thus, Thai sees itself as the leader of the English team.
“I find myself in a different position than I was at Red Bull, more than anything else I see myself as a leader.”
“I have to use my experience in a better way and develop a car with Nicky. I think I used it last year to mature. I don’t think I could get a play like this in 2019 or 2020. I feel better now. And I take full advantage of this new challenge.”
